The Svea Plastic Rug 140x220cm was designed by Lina Rickardsson for the manufacturer pappelina.
Rickarddson is a designer with the talent and confidence to express herself in the most stylish and simple ways. She specialises in domestic interior furnishings, so it's no wonder that creations such as the Svea Plastic Rug 140x220cm fit in so easily with a range of looks and styles. This one, however, will particularly appeal to the minimalists among us.
It's practical as well as versatile, being made from light yet robust synthetic materials that are chosen to cope well with everyday living. This rug is at home anywhere, from childrens' bedrooms and play areas to the kitchen, on the balcony or in the garden.
Although made for the way we live now, Rickardsson's rugs are still manufactured where the pappelina story began, in the old textile mill in the Darlana region, one of the spiritual homes of traditional Swedish arts and crafts. The synthetic threads - a hallmark of Rickardsson's work - are woven on Jacquard-style looms for a traditional sturdiness and texture, and it's no surprise that the designer has little time for environmentally unfriendly chemicals, preferring an altogether more eco-conscious product.
